Case Construction Equipment introduced its new H Series rough terrain forklifts on Aug. 15.
The Case 586H and 588H forklifts meet Tier 4 Interim qualifications through the use of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) technology and a diesel particulate filter. Both models feature Case turbocharged engines rated at 78 net horsepower and deliver a minimum five-percent increase in fuel efficiency and faster response times than previous models.
Both models feature standard differential lock, 60 degrees of mast tilt and optional load control to safeguard loads at travels speeds up to 24 miles per hour, a tapered rear hood and wide-channel dual-mast cylinders, a narrow operating console, a roller mast design, an outboard wet disc brake design and a narrow, zero-tail swing design. Both are available with 22-ft (6.7-m) masts.
The Case 586H forklift, which features a standard 15-foot mast, has a minimum operating weight of 13,228 pounds, lift capacity of 6,000 pounds and lift speed of 107 feet per minute.
The Case 588H forklift features a minimum operating weight of 15,639 pounds, lift capacity of 8,000 pounds and lift speed of 106 feet per minute.
Many of the standard powertrain components on the H Series, such as the engine and axles, are the same as the N Series loader/backhoes. However, differences in the series include hydraulically actuated, wet disc brakes that do not include a power-assist capability.
Optional features on both models include four-wheel drive and deluxe suspension seat and load control.
